of east. >> it's armageddon. >> your religion will come under al tackth if obama is reelected, this country is over! [ laughter ] >> jon: i'm not sure what happened. i thought -- i -- i blacked out in the middle of that and woke up with an ak -- whatever this is. i'm sure i'll get letters about what this really is. which is plastic is what it really is. [ laughter ] it brings us back to the more direct issue of guns. >> gun control doesn't work. >> jon: or not. [ laughter ] i keep forgetting what else? >> we have a mental health system in this country completely and totally collapsed. >> jon: okay, okay. again, 100%. thank you, wayne lapeeer far bringing this up. the mentally ill live on the streets and are in prison. it's up to us to help them find proactive care. this is what we have to address. >> we have no national database of these lunatics. >> jon: or that. or that. [ laughter ] i was going to say compassionate total care of mental illness or lunatic database. although isn't that what the internet is? isn't that a national database. what would be the criteria for the lu
obama and at the same time the country is divided on issues important to everyone. what will his agenda look like in the next four years? tonight we're going to find out with top advisers and experts. let's get started. joining me now is massachusetts's governor, president obama's campaign co-chairman. welcome. how are you governor? >> good evening, piers. i'm well. how are you? >> i'm very well. this is the first i've covered since being to cnn and there's a palpable, i think, anticipation in the air about what kind of barack obama we're going to see now that perhaps the shackles are off in the sense that he doesn't have to worry about being re-elected. he's got four years left and it's an opportunity for him to really go for it. >> well, i think we're going to see a president with a new level and a new kind of resolve as we did through the campaign. i think we're going to see some of the things we heard about already in terms of immigration reform and new moves around gun safety. i think we'll see some progress on the peacekeeping around the world, and we will see an emphasis on econo
pledge he has held the new candidates to is keeping millions -- it has a role to play in a country rich in the land grant colleges, highways, bridges. i understand the bridge out here is about to be built. i am all for infrastructure. >> obama in a way has to be the luckiest politician. if you look at the republican lineup -- [laughter] it is like michael dukakis in an oversized tank hat. >> the idea that newt gingrich is now at the top of the heap. >> you do not want to be the top because they get shot out. >> it is seems like anybody but romney. >> herman cain is a breath of fresh air. [laughter] >> i am not going to reassess him as he reassesses his campaign. >> herman cain is fabulous. >> newt gingrich -- i am going to get serious on you. newt gingrich is an error lobbyist -- uber lobbyist. barney frank talk about michele bachmann. he also called out newt gingrich and said he held him responsible for the demonization of opponents that has contributed to the atmosphere we live in today. i do think he came into the house. he slashed all of the caucasus and civility. we are seeing this
of this, of defaulting on our debts, the country will be in a dire situation. president obama knows this. he believes it. he has proved it before. and he is not going to play games with economic stability. >> so we've got to pay our bills. and republicans in congress have two choices here. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills, or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. the financial well-being of the american people is not leverage to be used. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. and they better choose quickly, because time is running short. >> the president simple and direct. everybody on the same page now? of course not. naturally, the republican leaders decided to confuse and distract one more time. senate republican leader mitch mcconnell continued to link the debt ceiling increase to spending. in a statement he said the president and his allies need to get serious about spending and the debt limit debate
debt, republicans will take the blame for the damage, as president obama pointed out, the country is required by law to pay for what congress spends. >> congress authorizes spending. they order me to spend. they tell me you need to fund our defense department at such and such a level. you need to send out social security checks. you need to make sure that your paying to care for our veterans. they lay all this out for me. because they have the spending power. and so i am required by law to go ahead and pay these bills. >> many republicans are willing to just let it all burn to the ground. politico reported more and more house republicans are planning to damage the economy. gop officials said more than half of their members are prepared to allow default unless president obama agrees to dramatic cuts he has repeatedly said he opposes. john boehner does not have any clout with the tea party members of the congress. this is the big problem. here comes congressman ralph hall of texas. he's got a rather radical view of what it means to raise the debt ceiling. >> we made a mistake when w
and barack obama profoundly disagree on the direction of the country. they disagree on moral, cultural, fiscal and social issues. that's-- >> i don't want a divided answer. i want who is the bigger or biggest culprit? >> well, obama proposes and they reject. >> he can't bear to say it's the republicans' fault. the tea party republicans are obviously the fault in the house. and the senate republicans bear the brunt of abusing the filibuster, the point where they've used it 385 times while reid has been the leader. it was used once when lyndon johnson was the speaker and that was the great civil rights battle. it's a total misuse and abuse of power. >> harry reid should not get a free pass. he has prevented republicans from ever offering amendments on a lot of these important votes. his management of the senate is imperious and when republicans have allowed things to move to a vote, not filibuster them, he still prohibited republican amendments so he bears at least half the blame for what's going on in the senate. >> this is a democracy. it shouldn't work that way. >> obama says he likes
obama now to say to the country, these are the things that will are left undone that we, together, must find a way to do >> michael, as a speechwriter first, who would you look at to kind of -- who's analogous at this point for president obama and his speechwriters to look back. just tell us, first you and then don, how do you write that sentence that gets engraved, you know know, on some granite somewhere 50 years from now? >> this is the most formal of all the speeches the president gives. you are trying for high rhetoric in a speech like this they don't all succeed. 16 second infalling in ras, not too many of them are memorable, except the most memorable in american history. >> the ones michael and i worked on. >> yes, of course. >> i do think that you can't really write for granite. you write where is this moment in the broad context of american history and the great purposes of american history? and i think the president does need to address, in a forthright manner, the profound political polarization in our society, polarization between congress and the president that produces gri
? in 2004, who was leader of the party? nobody even heard of barack obama? what you have is a changing country. >> whenever a party loses a presidential election i understand that but what i think you are overlooking is countries change in 12 years. the minority vote is much more substantial. the younger americans are not engaged. they don't really pay attention. and they are going on whim and they are going on trend. the media is much more rabidly pro-left now than it was. three things have changed. and i agree whenever a party wins, they're going to take some momentum into the next year. i think it's changed america now. >> i think you are wrong. every time a party loses you get a book coming out saying the permanent republican majority. the permanent liberal majority. nothing in the country is permanent. what's important to remember is this republicans republicansn a beating. liberalism i think we would agree, which is all tax and all spend will not work he or she stein once said if something can't go on it won't go on it will stop. it all stopped in europe. you can only go on spend
't you failing the country, say the insurgents? the answer, the country chose obama, he gets four years. want to save the republic? win the next election. liz, if charles krauthammer recommending the gop be less intransigent, do you think inside those meetings going on this weekend there will be some message, some form of that message? >> look, i think there's an amazing amount of soul searching going on within the republican party right now. and it's a troubled time for the party because there is no single standard bearer. it's not as if there's one leader who is charting a course and saying, yes, we're going to compromise or no, we're not. and -- and so, you know, the fact remains in the last two national elections presidential elections, the republicans lost. so they've got to figure out a way to listen to those voters who, you know, decide close elections. it's the middle of america. and the middle of america has said repeatedly, get something done. we'll see if the republicans listen. >> and alex, you know, they've brought in a pollster this weekend, they want to talk about, for ex
it, they're now accusing president obama of using his position as president to lead the country. the horror! >> i'm afraid that president obama may have this king complex sort of developing and we're going to make sure it doesn't happen. >> we've completely lost our checks and balances. the congress needs to hold the president accountable for the decisions he's making right now. >> as i said before, i'm going to arm all of my deputies. a month ago, i said that before this, with automatic weapons and semi-automatic weapons. we're going to be able to fight back. i don't care what they say from washington. >> jennifer: actually, think about the demographic politics of the last election. what do all of the broad array of critics not just those ones but what do they have in common? aside from the obvious -- they're all white. they're all male. now, of course, not every white male thinks the same way that they do. but it is notable that this virulent anti-regulation bunch the folks who have been the first shakers not just rush limbaugh, but the folks in congress too they're made up of
, president obama and the use of enhanced interrogation uses, which is not needed to keep our country safe. a few months after taking office, the president traveled to the national archives am aware he discussed how national security to card a delicate balance to train secrecy and transparency. he pledged to share as much information as possible with the american people so that they can make informed judgments and hold us accountable. he has consistently asked of those on national security team to be as open and candid as possible as well. earlier this year, attorney general holder discussed how our efforts are rooted in our strength adherence to the law, including the legal authorities that allow us to pursue members of al qaeda, including u.s. citizens, and using technologically advanced weapons. in addition, jake johnson at the department of defense had addressed the legal basis for our military efforts against al qaeda. the general counsel for the cia has discussed how the agency operates under the u.s. law. there was a lecture given two years ago. they noted that u.s. practices, inclu
he subscribes he's tremendously persuasive. i don't think his advocacy of obama care and the health care bill supports that. >> it did pass. >> it did pass with chicanery but he did not move the country which is what he's trying to do with the nra. obama's approval rating 52%, the nra's approval rating 54%. >> congress is 17%. >> since gun control came back to the top of the agenda, the nra has acquired 250,000 new members so we'll find out. you saw by putting up the statements from some of the democratic senators that there's a resistance in the democratic caucus because they have six seats up next time. >> all of those senators, i showed. >> in states where mr. obama got less than 42% of the votes, the republicans need to control the senate six seats. >> how hard does he push this, cokie? >> i think he pushes parts of it. the assault weapons ban is obviously a huge problem and that's what most people pushing back against. although it is interesting with the increased number of women in congress that it might have a better shot than 1994, 29% of republican men voted for the assault
to my country. in fairness, obama announced the closing of guantanamo and dick cheney said it's a horrible idea, but these are the worst of the worst, a statement that was false. 40 of the people had been cleared by the bush administration. 40 more won habeas cases. peter dick cheney was lying or did not know the facts. the obama administration did not take them on, in any event. then they want to take that group into virginia, frank wolf said don't do that, and they backed down, the obama administration backed down. then congress said you cannot take them. what he's got to do is grow a pair of big ones, but he's got to have a plan and these guys to work it. there are problems, but it's doable, and he has the power to do it. it will take a few months, but he could do it. >> there's no political value in doing it. >> it has to be moral. >> it's your legacy. >> the lady behind you. >> where am i going? >> sorry. i'm from the constitution project on the detainee treatment. colonel davis managed the dark times yesterday. i was wondering, there are a number of individuals who have
's national day of service. people all over the country are doing the same thing the obamas are doing right now, volunteering in their community on this martin luther king holiday weekend. this national day of service going on here on the national mall where the president is -- it's an elementary school. >> it is an elementary school here in washington. i believe he's doing a little bit similar to his service project last time around four years ago because i believe he had a paint brush in his hand that time. but it looks like he's helping -- what i've seen so far, helping to complete an overhaul of a school in washington, d.c. he has some very good volunteers. i believe they are with city year and they're working to, you know, maybe do a little painting, a little varnishing of a bookcase, john. >> it is the burrville elementary school in northeast washington there. i have to say mrs. obama sporting a little more form than the president painting that bookcase. >> she also has a pair of gloves. maybe he's worried about getting dirty. we lost the shot. that's okay. a lot going on today in the
i'm looking at is the country's expectations. when president obama was first inaugurated, he became -- and a lot of his staffers will tell you this -- sort of a victim of the high expectations that the public had for him. now the expectations are kind of lower, so the folks in the administration are saying, well, if the expectations are lower, maybe we can overperform a little instead of underperforming like people thought we did last time around. so they're kind of looking for the glass half full part of this. equation. >> one of the things going on beneath numbers indicates a sort of tsunami of hyperpartisanship that this administration has tried to operate in. it's a stark partisan divide. 76% of democrats thinks things are going well in the country. only 28% of republicans feel that way. so that is really a reminder of the divides at work. >> i think what we don't know right now, one of the big mysterie mysteries, is where this economy is truly going. we hear from a number of people like jamie dimon has been arguing, we get a grand bargain this economy will take off. a lot of pe

the country's ability to defend itself. >> karzai met with u.s. president barack obama last week in washington. the two sides have agreed that afghan forces will take the lead in security operations starting this spring. u.s. troops will transition to a support role. unmanned drones help international forces in afghanistan collect intelligence on the 5,000 occasions last year. but afghan forces have lacked that technology, forcing them to rely on foreign allies for intelligence. international combat troops are scheduled to leave afghanistan by the end of 2014. time is running out to improve the capabilities of the of began military. and that wraps up our bulletin for today. >>> emerging economic powers still struggling with poverty. emboldened citizens still demanding democracy. the threat of violence, the push for peace, the shadow of conflict. get news and insight on south and southeast asia every weekday live from bangkok only on nhk world "newsline." >>> the candidate of prime minister abe approved a budget to bolster the flagging economy. if approved by parliament, the budget would enable

with nermeen shaikh. >> welcome to all our listeners and viewers from around the country and around the world. president obama is set to propose sweeping new gun restrictions today in an effort to curb gun violence one month after the newtown school massacre. obama will reportedly call for a ban on assault weapons, a ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines, and expanded background checks for gun buyers. white house press secretary jay carney spoke on tuesday. >> the president and vice president will hold in event here at the white house to unveil a package of concrete proposals to reduce gun violence and prevent future tragedies like the ones in newtown, connecticut. they will be joined by children from around the country who wrote the president letters in the wake of that tragedy, expressing their concerns about gun violence and school safety along with their parents. >> obama's proposal is said to include 19 separate steps he could take through executive action. other aspects of the deal would have to go through congress. meanwhile, new york governor andrew cuomo has signed what is being
makeup of the country? >> i know barack obama. i trust him. i know that our president has -- not only house, but will continue to promote the cabinet that looks like america, that is balanced gender-wise, that is reflective of the changing face of america. i have no doubt in my mind that when it is all said and done that will be the case. this is the guy who signed the lilly ledbetter act and has stood not just for equal pay for women, but has always stood for the notion that when you open up the door for one of was, you open up the door for all of us i expect -- for all of us. i expect to see that reflected in his cabinet. >> has the white house or any administration circuit -- started to approach you about becoming a member of the cabinet? >> like the governor question, a question that has been asked and answered in the past, i will just say that as i said yesterday, i expect to be in washington quite frequently over the next few months with my work for the u.s. conference of mayors and the issues i have mentioned. i do not care toyesterday commey future job. i am focused on the job
. that's how the white house is describing the proposals that president obama will offer this morning to reduce gun violence across the country. but how much change can happen without the support from congress? chuck hagel's bid to run the pentagon appears to be gaining steam with key democrats now giving him a thumbs up. this morning, we'll talk to one of his biggest advocates on the hill, rhode island's jack reed. and some must-see tv. bill clinton kicks the door wide open for a hillary clinton campaign in 2016 and he makes a direct appeal, saying her health is not an issue and that he'll support whatever she decides. good morning from washington. it's wednesday, january 16th, 2013. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's get right to my first reads of the morning. and it begins with guns. today the president will unveil what one gun control activist characterized nbc news as the most sweeping gun control measures proposed since right after the assassinations of bobby kennedy and mlk back in 1968. the president is going bold, fulfilling a promise he made one month ago in
. harris, thank you. >> sure. jon: plenty of drama in the growing debate over guns in this country, this after president obama proposes the most sweeping changes to u.s. gun laws in almost two decades. his plan is drawing a lot of criticism, including from, including a number of executive orders like stronger background checks and more support to law enforcement agencies but the main part of mr. obama's plan requires congressional approval. it calls for renewing an assault weapons ban that went into effect in 1994. then expired a decade later. now the question is whether all of this will be implemented and if so, will it make a difference? paul gigot is the editorial page editor of "the wall street journal." the president has suggested that, you know, the american people are behind these proposals. the question is, is the congress? >> well i think that remains to be seen and i think the reality is this is an uphill fight for the president and not merely because of republican opposition in the house of representatives, which they control. also because of democratic potential opposit
, on the very day the country set aside to honor dr. king, mlk day, barack obama, america's first african-american president, will take the oath of office for the second time. i spoke with a close friend of dr. king's and a speechwriter who contributed to dr. king's speech. >> it brings back some memories of 50 years ago. the "i have a dream" speech, the march on washington, probably would not have occurred but for the demonstrations in birmingham, alabama. the key to understanding the history before the "i have a dream" speech and the march on washington is birmingham, alabama. that's what turned -- that's what elevated the conscience of the nation. it's almost -- i was thinking about, it was america seeing a -- seeing young african-american boys and girls being slammed up against the wall by fire hoses and bitten by police dogs. those who were participating in dr. king's effort to desegregate birmingham, alabama. that raised the question nationally as to what kind of country are we. and it -- and so what dr. king and other -- other people in the civil rights movement did in organizing t
